Customer Tour Reviews

We are very proud that time after time customers enjoy their time on our walking tours, holidays and adventure breaks. Here’s just a selection of what people say about our holidays:-


“Thank you for yesterday, the Coniston Old Man was a walk that we would not have attempted on our own. We throughly enjoyed the day, and thought that your guidance and motivation was of the highest level. We would highly recommend anyone to use Country Adventures, and look forward to our next walking adventure with you.”
John & Vanessa (Coniston Old Man Day Walk, March 2017)


“As always a great walking weekend with Joe. Really enjoyed the varied walks and Pendle Hill was truly memorable. Stayed in Clitheroe which was a perfect base for the weekend. A true professional is Joe with a wealth of experience and knowledge. Looking forward to the next adventure..”
Karen (Two Shires Walking Weekend February 2017)


“The third time with Joe. A fabulous walking weekend in very safe conditions contributed by Joe’s kindly and comprehensive guidance. Unforgettable and will join Country Adventure again.”
Wenhao (Two Shires Walking Weekend February 2017)


“Wherever you go with Country Adventures, be it the Lake District, Snowdonia, or Yorkshire, you can be sure that the walks will show you the best of the local area. They’ve been well researched by Joe who knows what he’s doing. The reason I keep coming back is that, for those who don’t have ready access to walking companions, Country Adventures is like a ready-made group of friends. It’s great to meet people from such a variety of backgrounds and enjoy amazing scenery at the same time.”
Alison (Twixmas Walking Weekend 2016)


“Just got home from the 2016 Twixmas walking break at Llangollen Whitewaters Hotel and feeling very satisfied with some challenging walks in good company. Very good hotel accommodation, good food, exercise and a few beers made for a perfect long weekend break. The weather was stunning too which gave excellent views from the hill tops.
The thing that sets Country Adventures apart is the man, Joe, himself. His jovial personality and easy going chat makes for a great group dynamic and an enjoyable holiday.
All walks are properly organised with safety in mind. Bag meals supplied, evening socials, camaraderie with no pressure. 5 stars because I can’t think of anything at fault with this trip. Looking forward to the next adventure.”
